Product Description

The most common stool test to detect H. pylori is called a H-pylori antigen stool test. It looks for foreign proteins (antigens) associated with H. pylori infection in your stool. Antibiotics, acid-suppressing drugs known as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and bismuth subsalicylate (Pepto-Bismol) can interfere with the accuracy of these tests.   Wait at least four weeks after you complete your antibiotic treatment to test your stool. You should stop taking PPI medications for one or two weeks before the test.

This test is available for :

  • Adults
  • Children older than 3
